The Berke Arch Dam is the highest arch dam constructed in Turkey. The dam height is m, and the crest length is m. This paper describes the Berke Arch Dam, its finite-element modeling, ambient vibration testing, finite-element model calibration, and earthquake behavior before and after model calibration. The behaviors of major high concrete arch dams subjected to earthquakes both in China and abroad, including the m high Pacoima concrete arch dam subjected to the San Fernando earthquake of magnitude and the Northridge earthquake of magnitude and a m high Sharpei roller-compacted concrete arch dam subjected to the Earthquake behavior of arch dams: proceedings of the China-US workshop, Beijing, China, June THE PERFORMANCE OF EARTH DAMS DURING EARTHQUAKES by H.

The book covers the entire subject. Earthquake Engineering & Structural Dynamics Vol Issue Article. Earthquake analysis of arch dams including dam‐water‐foundation rock interaction.

The hazard posed by large dams has long been known. This book evaluates contemporary knowledge about the earthquake performance of concrete dams, including procedures for investigating the seismic safety of such structures. It informs researchers about earthquake analysis of concrete dams and identifies areas where additional knowledge is needed.

EGAT Thailand EGAT, ThailandANIDIS An analysis procedure in the frequency domain for determining the earthquake responses of a dam was developed. The procedure inclides hydrodynamic interaction and water compressibility effects. Linear responses of idealized, two dimensional gravity dams and three dimensional dams, including arch dams were obtained. Arch dams are suited for relatively narrow valleys with competent rock in the abutments. Typically the angle subtended by the arch at the crest is between 90° and °. The arch radius at the crest is typically between 1 and 2 times the height of the dam. Thickness at the base of the crown cantilever is typically 15 to 25 percent of the height.
